BHP has completed an off-market buyback of its shares at $27.64 each. The buyback was funded by BHP’s sale of its US onshore oil and gas assets to BP for $US10.4 billion ($14.7 billion) earlier in 2018. Proceeds from the sale will also go towards the payment of a special dividend of $1.42 per share, which shareholders will receive on 30 January. Those who took part in the share buyback will be paid on 24 December. Macquarie Wealth Management believes that BHP could return another $US3 billion to shareholders in the 2019 financial year.
